Every month the school board makes a trip over to one of the Fort Madison Community School District buildings to look at the facilities.
Pictured above is Jeremy Swink, Activities Director, walking members of the school board around the softball and baseball fields.
It’s important for the school board to tour the facilities to get a better idea of the needs of our district. They can see, first hand, what improvements are urgent and important to address.
The weight room has had a variety of additions over the last couple of years. One of those being the new TVs next to each station.
FMHS students connect their workout app to the TVs, which then walks them through their workout. This allows for a more efficient workout and gives coaches more time to attend to their athletes.
These TVs really come in handy during Mr. Doherty’s morning Athletic Enhancement non-credit course. Mr. Doherty has an average of 70 kids attending this morning course, so the TVs really come in handy when it comes to keeping track of all of those students!
